CAEP Annual Reporting Measures
CAEP has annual reporting measures which are used to provide information to the public on program impact and program outcomes. The following measures are those specified by CAEP for annual reporting. Impact measures include (a) completer impact and effectiveness, (b) employer satisfaction and stakeholder involvement, (c) candidate competency at the time of program completion, and (d) ability of completers to be hired in positions for which they were prepared. The EPP is responsible for clearly identifying and prominently displaying data pertaining to each of the Accountability Measures on its website so that the information is easily understandable and accessible by public.
Below are the reporting measures for our undergraduate and graduate initial and advanced licensure programs with data tables and information that provide supporting evidence for each measure.
- Measure 1 (Initial): Completer effectiveness. (R4.1)
- Measure 2 (Initial and Advanced): Satisfaction of employers and stakeholder involvement. (R4.2|R5.3| RA4.1)
